so what's new with you? food! you are a tiny little thing so we have been pumping you full of homemade baby food and you are loving it! your favorites by far are sweet potatoes and bananas, but you have also tried pears, carrots, oatmeal, peas, apples, green beans, turkey, and chicken. the strangest combination? bananas and turkey! i can't hardly shovel it into your mouth fast enough!
you now have both of your bottom teeth and you like to use them occasionally...we are working on that! you have also gone through a stage that while nursing you would attack my face with your free hand. you put your fingers in my mouth, up my nose and everywhere else! it is so cute (most of the time!). your latest trick is growling. it is the funniest thing! you growl while eating, you growl while jumping, you growl outside. there is no limit and it cracks us up!
you love being outside which is a good thing with your two older brothers. we will take your jumper or exersaucer outside and you will happily play while they shoot hoops and run around. we have had some warmer days finally and it is nice to watch you take it all in outside.
your favorite mode of transportation is rolling! you roll everywhere, even getting stuck under the couch thanks to your helmet! i will put you down in one spot and find you in another in a matter of seconds. you are appreciating some different toys now that you can grasp and handle them with ease. your favorites right now are maracas, a piece of plastic mail, baby mirrors, anything you can bang and any non-toy (i.e. napkins, straw paper, etc).
the big appointments this month included getting your helmet professionally wrapped and a follow-up with your cardiologist. the helmet appointment was fun and interesting. we had picked digital orange camo and they already had it printed out on this vinyl sheet that they then blow-torched to your helmet. very cool! and we loved the finished product, and so did you!
salsa, i love being your mom and watching you grow up!
